A Trip to Korea for Prince George Couple After $139K Lotto 6/49 Win

August 28, 2023


Myung and Jin Kim are looking forward to crossing off a major bucket list item — a winter vacation in Korea — after matching 5/6+ numbers from the June 17, 2023 Lotto 6/49 draw, netting them exactly $139,300.30. 

Jin picked up the couple’s ticket from Walmart on Southridge Avenue and was out with Myung when they discovered the good news.

“I saw there was a winner in Prince George and I asked my wife to check the ticket and tell me the numbers,” Jin recalled. “We saw the winning numbers and discovered we matched them. My wife was very happy.”

The Prince George residents plan to celebrate their windfall with some wine and said it feels “unbelievable” to win.

In addition to a trip to Korea, they are excited to pay off their mortgage, thanks to their win.
